Thanks to SMMT, now that we have explored the UK market as a whole for January, as is the tradition on BSCB we zoom in on the British nations and this month England (+8%) lifs the entire country with Wales (+2%), Scotland (-1%) and Northern Ireland (-5%) all under performing vs. the national average of +7%. #1 nationally, the Ford Fiesta tops 3 out of 4 nations in January: England, Northern Ireland and Wales, missing the top spot by 71 units in Scotland where it is outsold by the Vauxhall Corsa.

Toyota Aygo UK January 2015The Toyota Aygo is #7 in Wales

The Nissan Qashqai does even better in England than nationally, up to #3 there, as does the Mercedes C-Class up to #6. Lots of movement in Northern Ireland where the Seat Ibiza is up to #7, the Hyundai ix35 up to #8 and the Hyundai i20 cracks its first Top 10 for the new generation at #10. Excellent performance of the Fiat 500 in Scotland: it lands on the podium at #3 while the Audi A3 is up to an unusually high 5th place and the Dacia Sandero is back in the Scottish Top 10 at #6. Notice also the Toyota Aygo up to #7 in Wales.
